Tortellinis in Creamy Tomato Sauce
I whipped this up the other night because I happened to have all the ingredients in the refrigerator and thought, “I’ll give it a whirl!” It turned out super yummy and was VERY easy to make! There was enough for the whole family- and it was a hit with the kids. I know it’s not super healthy- sorry about the cream (it just tastes so great)!! But, that’s why the side salad is so imperative to this meal...A little bad with a lotta good!
2 Tbl butter
2 Tbl fresh sage, finely chopped
3 Tbl shallots, finely chopped
1 Tbl garlic, chopped
8 oz mushrooms, diced
salt & pepper
1 1/2c. to 2 c. jarred tomato pasta sauce (depending on how tomato-y you want it!)
1/4 c. to 3/4 c. cream (depending on how creamy you want it!)
20 oz package fresh tortellini, your family’s favorite kind
1 c. shredded Parmesan
Preheat oven to 350F
Add butter to a large frying pan on medium heat. Add sage and shallots. Cook for 3 minutes. Add garlic and cook for one more minute. Add mushrooms and cook for 5 more minutes until mushrooms are brown. Add salt and pepper to taste. Very carefully add the pasta sauce and cream. Stir to combine.
Lightly spray a 13X9” glass pan. Add uncooked tortellinis to pan. Evenly pour the mushroom sauce over the tortellinis. Sprinkle the whole dish evenly with Parmesan.
Bake in the oven for 25 minutes. Serve with crusty bread and a side salad. Enjoy!
